The San Jose Sharks will be without winger Adam Burish for the entire second round of the playoffs.

Per CSN Bay Area’s Kevin Kurz, Burish suffered an upper-body injury in Game 4 of the Sharks’ first-round sweep of the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

Burish is a physical forward with playoff experience. The 30-year-old won a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2010.

It’s not clear if he’s expected to return in time for the conference finals, should the Sharks make it that far.

    Damn… Now what about Wingles?

    Physical play is something this team will need in the playoffs, can’t just dive your way to a cup

    Really? The Canucks did in 2011 or well at least to the finals game 7.
    I really enjoy how the Sharks have this diving reputation, all started by a team who has the worst reputation of diving.

    The “upper body injury” and “lower body injury” labels are stupid, the NHL should actually have the balls to tell teams they need to own up to what injuries actually are. I know the arguement is “then the opposition will target that” well if Shanahan would actually do his job and hand out discipline to players that wouldn’t happen. But I guess “the code” that people like Don Cherry are always going on about allows players to target each other.
